    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores (Johnson City, TN) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Let me start off by saying, this was a group interview. I was not informed of this and it blindsided me. I am glad I did not get the job though... Sales work...meaning you have quotas that you cannot meet and thus are fired. I interviewed here and the recruiter was rude. She was smart enough not to say anything, but her actions spoke volumes. It was clear from the beginning who she would hire. The interviewer snubbed a 40 something woman and myself from the get go as she immediately asked a new question once her thin blonde interviewee and her obvious chosen one had answered. It felt like an immense waste of my time. But I was willing to let it go up until I caught her shooting me the up and down glance that thin women give to women of size. Even in letting me know I did not get the job, they were rude and tacky. They sent me an email at three in the morning the day after I was supposed to hear back. That was the final straw. I will not be working there, obviously, but my business and the business of all my friends will be going to Torrid and other friendly establishments.

    I received the hourly rate I asked for but I'm pretty sure that's just what they pay associates.
